Freezing Jalapeno's

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

I make a lot of ABT'S everyone seems to love them, so i decided to plant some Jalapeno's in my garden. I only planted a dozen plants and have more peppers than i know what to do with.Was wondering if anyone has ever froze them,I dont know if they would get soft or not. I am also thinking of making some ABT's up and freezing them. I think I may give it a try and see how it works.

You can freeze them. They freeze just like any pepper. They don't get soft.

Yes, as others have said, they freeze well.  Here is a great site if you ever need to know how you prepare fruits/vegetables for storage.  It also contains info on picking them.

 Buy a bushel of japs when i can find them on sale and halve , seed and freeze for pepper jelly. They get a little soft when thawed .but not enough to hurt anything.

I am lucky enough to get them for less than a $ lb regularly so I just buy them fresh but if I had to I would freeze them in a heartbeat

They will soften when frozen as any pepper will in a home freezer.  The flavor will still be fine though.


Good luck and good smoking.

Been freezing all my Red Japs to make a chipotle powder, so far seems fine.
